In this tutorial, we will discuss how you can turn off the read receipts on your text messages so people cannot see if you have read their message or not. It’s a simple process that can help you maintain your privacy.
Firstly, go to the settings app on your Android device. Scroll down to the apps section and find the Messages app. Click on the messages settings at the top.
One thing to note here is that sometimes the chat settings won’t work, so you need to opt into something before you can access it. If you face this issue, go to the More Settings option and check if “Show and Deliver” and “Show in Red” are checked off.
If your messages are still appearing as read receipts, then you need to go to the Chat Settings option at the top. It might prompt you to opt into something, so make sure to accept. Once you’re in the chat settings, look for the “Read Receipts” option at the bottom.
Toggle the switch off, and you’re done! Now, if someone sends you a message, they will not be able to see if you have read it or not. If you turn the toggle on, then they will be able to see if you have read their message.
You can also access the chat settings option by clicking on the three dots icon in the Messages app and then clicking on settings.
That’s it! It’s a straightforward process that can help you maintain your privacy. If you have any questions or face any issues, let us know in the comments below.
